The hype surrounding Disney ‘s live action (why are we calling it live action when it ‘s still animation) reboot of The Lion King has not died down since it was first announced years ago, and it feels like we ‘ve been waiting for roughly half a century for its release.

The movie hits theaters July 19, and in anticipation of its premiere, Disney just released a series of character posters that get right up close and personal.
